Start with 5 lines on the baseline. Separate the number of players into even numbers and give each of them a ball.
Give the players a move that you would like to work on. For example, right hand pound dribble.
On the whistle the five players at the front will begin a right hand pound dribble on the baseline.
While they are dribbling coaches walk around and check their posture, guard hand, balance and feet.
On the next whistle the first five players will explode out low and fast with the correct footwork.
They will stop at the free throw line/free throw line extended area working on their change of pace.
When the first five players leave the baseline the next five begin the right hand pound dribble.
Now there will be ten players dribbling all at the same time.
Players must have perfect dribbling posture, feet balance, form and be in the correct spot with eyes up before the coach blows the whistle to move to the next line.
On the next whistle the second group will explode out and the third group will begin. There will now be 15 players pound dribbling.
Each group continues and will end at opposite baseline with a jump stop and a pivot.
